Baby Baltimore Oriole

Well, we never did get a nesting pair of Baltimore Orioles in our tree this year. We are thinking it had something to do with the lake being empty in April when the males arrived. The good news is that the adults are now bringing the fledglings to our yard for feeding. We will keep up with the grape jelly and oranges, but we suspect they will feed on mostly the insects they catch high up in the trees, which makes photographing them a challenge. We will enjoy their company and share any good pictures we get.

Blue Heron In Front Of Waterfall: Photo by Joe



I took this shot with my canon 7D, 70-200 2.8 IS, a ND filter, and a tripod. F14 at 1.6s at 200mm. I went to the Paulinskill Lake to take pictures of the falls and he happened to be there. What a great surprise. I hope you enjoy the picture as much as I enjoyed taking it.

Thank you,

Joe

The baby red-bellied woodpeckers are growing up. They still visit with the father who feeds them, but they are also eating jelly on their own.
